Ha fatto parte della compagnia di danza butoh “Hoppo-Butoh-ha”, in Hokkaido dal 1980 al 1984. L’ultimo suo lavoro con la compagnia “Takazashiki” è stato coreografato dal fondatore del butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata. Dal 1986 ha iniziato a sviluppare il suo stile di danza butoh, che ha chiamato Jinen butoh: Jinen è la vita in ogni cosa, organica e non, il jinen butoh è una forza che danza con il tutto. Crea e danza i soli “Tanagokoro”, “Ginkan”, “Itteri”, come universale espressione della natura, della terra, dei tempi remoti, danzando le sue impressioni nell’istante presente, attraverso tutto l’ambiente che lo circonda. Dall’autunno dell 2002, ha fatto dell’Europa la sua base di lavoro, iniziando a lavorare con workshop, performance solo e di gruppo: Polonia, Italia, Francia, Spagna, Olanda, Germania, Russia, Usa, Canada, Alaska, sono alcuni dei paesi che hanno ospitato il suo lavoro.
Vocalist, percussionista, usa strumenti e materiali naturali.
Dal 1999 accompagna Atsushi nelle sue performance e workshop e parallelamente collabora con gruppi e artisti come Lena Circus, Maki Watanabe, Kazuya Nagaya e altri.

6 months – Plants bloom the flower, bear fruits, and give seeds. Each person’s dance, each existence of body, each movement is also transforming through this 6 months.
We would like to share and spend this process, this opportunity together.
Finding your inner movements and connecting them with your Butoh dance.
This is the work of blooming flower.
Next, you once make withered the full energy from flower, and mature it.
Then extract your own Butoh movement and condense into one seed.
This one seed is your own Butoh piece.
Through extracting, condensing, you will meet the most important Butoh element for you.
This is the work of producing seeds.
Seeds of plant is a gift of flower life to the next generation of nature. In other words, it is a gift to nature, to the universe, to return all your life.
Audience receive this gift. What the audience want to see ultimately is the truth of your life that will not hide.
This is a single flower that bloomed in a moment on the stage from the seed of you.
—6 themes of this course —
The 1st – <Inside and outside >
Create into Butoh with the sense of space, the consciousness to exterior and the internal sense of life phenomenon. Internal sense; breath, internal organs, spine. External sense; sense of space, parallel sense, sensory, tacticle, visual. To dissolve the wall between the inside and the outside of the self of here and now, soul dresses the body, dresses the space and the landscape.
The 2nd < The memory of life and transformation >
– Think about time until today which has started from the Big Bang. If the time until now is a growth of huge single tree, we might be a leaf of the tip of a branch. This tree was a stone, wind, insect, fish, sea, the earth, moon. One leaf forget that this huge tree is a body of its own. All the memory stays within our body.
The 3rd < Light and shadow>
Growth and decay, night and day, static and dynamic, life and death. As night and day is necessary to all life, opposing these elements exist as of the ins and outs of one life. How we can experience these elements as one.
The 4th< Existence >
Your existence stands on the stage as a life. This is also the ultimate proposition of the performing art. It is to stand as the truth of your life. We will image and start create your own Butoh piece from this work of existence.
The 5th < Seed>
To find a seed from millions of flowers. It means that we extract a seed to create own work from millions of possibility . The important is we once need to face the wither of flower. Through facing death, we will discover seed. In this work, we progress creation and start imagining own costume for your work.
The 6th < A flower >
If the seed is a creation of work, we should transform the seed into a flower in one moment on the stage. You find Butoh here, you find miracle of life on the stage. And this is the truth, and the flower of truth.
